Drag Race questions

Ok I have a friend that's like obsessed with racing people and thinks anyone that is passing them or behind them or anything is racing or wanting to race them. Yes it's quite annoying
I'm inclined to invite them to the New England Dragway to give it a go and maybe they'll shut up at least to me about it lol

Now I know these are gonna be oddball line ups but that's how it's gonna go down.

I have a stock 09 Focus pzev sedan and a stock 03 Crown Victoria
Other person has a stock 08 Civic Sedan and a stock 08 CR-V

I am unsure of which car they would choose to use and I just can't pick myself. lol

Now surely the Crown Vic can beat either car right? But if the Focus can do it too, I'd rather use my Focus.

I've ridden in the CR-V and it has some grunt to it but it's big. I've driven the Civic, it likes to rev really quickly but unsure about it being "quick"
My Focus seems to not rev as quick as the Civic but not too sure about that too, The Crown Vic hauls after getting past 30-45.

How do you guys think this will pan out? Assuming we both react at the same time to green
I don't wanna invite them so I can hopefully get them to stop and end up failing

Well the vis will blow both of those cars off the track. The Focus will def pull on the CRV. Now the civic is it a 5 speed or auto? Do you have a 5 speed or auto in your Focus?

All cars are auto. And it's a 1/4 mi track if that matters from a 1/8

If my Focus would pull on the CRV, but would I win though.. I'm looking for that even if I win by a bit.

These are the specs I found for a CRV according to motor trend
-Power: 124 kW , 166 HP SAE @ 5,800 rpm; 161 ft lb , 218 Nm @ 4,200 rpm
with its weight being about 3300 but add some junk and a person it'd be 3500ish

Focus would be
- Power: 104 kW , 140 HP SAE @ 6,000 rpm; 136 ft lb , 184 Nm @ 4,250 rpm
weight being about 2700 and plus minimal junk and me would bring it to maybe 2870


They would more likely bring the CRV than the Civic but who knows. I do have a V6 Camry I COULD use but rather not mess with that thing. Though it is fairly quick for a Camry, sometimes I wonder if it's quicker than my Vic. lol

a buddy of mine has a 07 or 08 civic 5 speed standard non v-tec. it will do one hell of a burnout but its slow as molasses. the focus will stomp it. the CRV is questionable but im fairly sure the focus would beat it as well. never driven or seen a crv go so i cant be sure but the focus will smear the civic without breaking a sweat

both of your vehicles should beat the crv. now, the vic may put up a fight with the civic, now the civic may beat your focus. again like asked above, are they autos or manuals? also if either of you have experience in dragging. that will also play a big part in it as well.......
